The entire Castleford Tigers First Team squad and coaching
staff will face the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough with the aim of completing the challenge under 12 hours on Saturday, 30th November 2019 as they come together to raise funds for club’s official charity partner The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefact.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019, the hospice offers care for patients in the local area with life-limiting illnesses and relies on
raising over £5,000 each day to continue operating.
All care is provided free of charge and is entirely based on need, although only around 25 per cent of the cost is covered by the NHS. This leaves The Prince of Wales Hospice needing to raise around £3 million per year through its shops, fundraising events, donations and community initiatives to continue operating. Out of every £1 raised, 87p is spent directly on patient care.
Castleford Tigers have been fortunate enough to see first-hand in our partnership over the years just what fantastic work the Hospice do, and we hope the Tigers family will donate and sponsor the team in this challenge, and help raise as much money as possible.
